Soon to be trundling along London’s busy streets, the zero-carbon vehicle was designed and developed by China’s BYD company. Bus is 10.2m long, features full air conditioning and offers seats and standing spaces for 81 passengers. Batteries deliver 345 kWh of power and can run for up to 190 miles of typical urban driving. Recharging takes about four hours and can be completed overnight using low-cost off-peak electricity, the company said in a press release.
